Attention

Building Department Customers

 

Beginning July 12, 2010 there will be a small change in how your building permit application will be processed at the City of Taylor Building Department.

A Zoning Review Fee will be charged to all building permit applications at the time they are submitted to the Building Department.  This review will be performed to determine if the project you are proposing meets the requirements of the City of Taylor Zoning Ordinance.  Once your permit has been approved or denied from the zoning review you may follow the normal procedures in pulling your building permit.

Exceptions to the Zoning Review Fee:  The removal and replacement of Roofing, Siding, Windows, and Concrete.

The Zoning Review Fee does not include building plan review fees and/or permit fees.  Applications submitted to the Building Department subject to Zoning Review will not be reviewed until the review fee has been paid.
 

Zoning Fees:

Residential:  $25.00

Commercial:
Based on project under ½ acre……………………………………………….. $25.00
Based on project ½ to 1 acre………………………………………………….  $50.00
Based on project 1 to 5 acres…………………………………………………  $100.00
Based on project over 5 acres………………………………………………..  $175.00

Building Permit Applications that require plan review must be submitted to the Building Department with 3-sets of plan drawings and a digital copy on a CD. *No Exceptions*
Plans received without a digial copy will not undergo review until the digial copy is received. 

The Building Department oversees and approves all residential, commercial, and industrial construction within the city. The department is committed to protect, maintain and improve health, safety, welfare and the quality of life for residents and businesses located in our city through the enforcement of the State of Michigan construction Codes and local ordinances established for those purposes.

Rental Department
 

The Apartment Rental Inspection department was developed in order to oversee the maintenance of the City's rental housing stock. Apartments are inspected every three years. The maintenance and improvement of the rental stock is a goal of the department.  Rental Inspections are $200 every 3 years and require a one time registration fee of $50.  If the property changes ownership the propery will be required to be re-registered under the new owner and will require a new re-occupancy inspection.
